St. Patrick’s Day is just days away and now that I have a 5-year-old every holiday is a big deal around here. I’m pretty sure we’ve never done anything super exciting around St. Patty’s day but I have a feeling this year is about to change. With not a ton of ideas to go off of I decided I’d better do a little research to come up with some ideas to celebrate. However, I decided to go old school and not go straight to Pinterest. I wanted to see what the trusty old Google machine would come up with. I have to say, I wasn’t disappointed. There’s some good stuff out there.

So if you’ve been in the same boat as me and have no clue what to do on such a holiday, I’m here to help with a few websites you can visit to get some St. Patty’s day inspiration.

Disney Family
Have you heard of Disney Family? If you haven’t then now’s the time to check it out. This website is awesome and jam-packed with a ton of fun ideas. From crafts, to recipes to printables this is the website to go to if you have a Disney fan in your house. I tend to visit this website for their coloring pages but I love that they have various holiday ideas as well. Here’s a few ideas of what you can find on their St. Patrick’s Day page.

The Crafty Crow
This is another website I came across as I did a quick craft search. The Crafty Crow’s St. Patrick’s Day page has some great ideas for all ages! Seriously, there’s some awesome crafts on here. This website compiles ideas from all over and puts it in one spot — specifically for kids. How awesome is that? Some of the St. Patrick’s Day crafts might take longer to make than others but the great thing is there’s still time to run out and pick up the supplies if you don’t have them on hand already. This is definitely one of those websites I plan on frequenting, especially when my boys say they are bored and ask me what they can do.

Better Homes & Garden
Don’t forget to check out Better Homes & Garden when trying to come up with some great craft ideas. They have some fantastic stuff!  I love that their stuff is unique and there’s probably not a whole love of people out there doing it. Their St. Patrick’s Day ideas are awesome!

And saving THE best idea for last…

Have you seen this?? Spray painting oreos gold! What?? If you have any Oreo fans in your house this is must. Your kids will think you are the coolest person ever! We will surely be doing this at our house come March 17th.

Hopefully this gives you a good start to your St. Patrick’s Day festivities with your kids. The great thing is the ideas I’ve shared today is just a smidgen of what’s out there! Something else I’ve done with my 5-year-old is have him sit at the computer with me, we do a quick Google search on whatever we’re interested in doing that day and I let him pick whatever activity or craft he wants to do. These ideas are just some that caught my eye but kids can often times be thinking of something completely different.

This is a fun holiday to be creative, think green and see green! Happy crafting!
